Many animals that enter animal services fortunately make their way to the Humane Society of the Nature Coast (, a nonprofit and no time limit organization founded in 1964. They also obtain animals by owner-surrender. When an animal is brought to the shelter there is a process. Some animals go to isolation. During isolation the dog or cat is given a medical overview and spayed or neutered. Those that are owner-surrendered are ready for adoption immediately.
